The quake struck about 23 miles west-southwest of Mentone, Texas, around 4:27 a.m. local time.
“You probably were just rudely awakened by an earthquake. USGS is reporting a M5.2 south of Carlsbad, NM, which occurred at 3:27am. We felt it here in Santa Teresa,” the National Weather Service for El Paso, Texas, said in a post on X.
Santa Teresa, New Mexico, is more than 200 miles west of where the quake was detected.
